Newberg Appointed to RMEF Committee
MISSOULA, Mont.—Outdoor television producer and host Randy Newberg has accepted a volunteer position on the conservation issues/government relations committee of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
Newberg is well known for his all self-guided, all public-land hunting program “On Your Own Adventures,” which airs on Sportsman Channel.
The Bozeman, Mont., hunter also is a staunch follower of conservation issues, politics and policies nationwide.
The nine-member committee identifies issues affecting the RMEF mission and provides input to the staff and board of directors regarding organizational positions and directions. Members are annually appointed by the chairman of the board in consultation with the president.
“We’re excited about Randy working with RMEF on this committee. He brings a wealth of knowledge and great perspective on relevant issues facing conservation and hunting. He’s a great asset for our organization,” said David Allen, RMEF president and CEO.
Newberg said, “I’ve been an RMEF member and supporter for a long time. There have been times when I disagreed with organizational positions and I always made sure to let them know my opinion. Now, by serving on this committee, I’ll continue to advocate for conserving wild places and the abundant hunting opportunities they provide.”
